132’ Commercial Bin
Chief Executive Officer & 4th Generation Owner of Sioux Steel Company.
Scott loves to see "Ideas Coming to Life Under One Roof" at his family-owned business, founded in 1918. Rysdon says, "The employees of Sioux Steel Company have always come together to provide solutions for our customers and the latest example of this is the engineering and manufacturing a new 132' diameter commercial grain bin! Not only does the new 132' grain bin hold over 1 million bushels of corn, but has a roof that supports 35,000 lbs. of peak load, plus 65,000 lbs. of wind & unbalanced snow load! To show just how strong the roof really is, the employees of Sioux Steel Company came together to stand on a platform that was hung from the roof of the bin. The platform was suspended with cables and sat 4 ft. off the ground! The employees wanted to show, LITERALLY, that they not only stand behind the products that they build, but they will stand under them!
All 6'8" of him. You won't find a Professional Engineer in just every company that is 6'8" tall... nor will you find one as dedicated to the details as Chad Kramer is. When the owner of Sioux Steel Company asked Chad to design a 132' diameter bin that would hold over 1 million bushels of corn, Chad took on the challenge and made it happen. With his focus and determination, he was also able to design a roof for the bin that's strong enough to support over 35,000 lbs. of peak load, plus 65,000 lbs. of wind & unbalanced snow load!
The Sioux Steel employees came together and displayed their trust in Chad's engineering and stood on a platform, showing that the roof would hold their weight. Now that's "Ideas Coming to Life Under One Roof!"
